Imagining other PlayStation franchises as movies

by Gaetano Prestia Featured 8 Comments 16 Votes 2702 Views 26/04/2013 Back to Articles

You may have seen this left-field news from earlier this week: They're making a Ratcher and Clank movie.

Which makes sense and got me thinking: what other Sony franchises could be made into real-life movies?

Fat Princess

Family Comedy

The Synopsis: Evil remains forever knocking on the door of freedom. The village is struggling to keep the beloved Princess safe from terrorists and kidnappers...

Enter a wise-cracking rookie monarch agent, who proposes the outrageous idea to fatten up the princess so that no one can get her out the door. Hilarity ensues!

The Cast:

Charlize Theron (skinny Princess)

Rebel Wilson (Fat Princess)

Hot Shots Golf

Thriller

The Synopsis: After underpaying a 7-11 store clerk by 5 cents, the Japanese-owned company sues first-generation American Joel Nagasaki for failure to oblige by consumer etiquette in the hope of generating free publicity in the US and improve fledging sales. Joel is sentenced to 20 years as a cleaner in a 7-11 store in Tokyo. While there the store’s owned invites Joel to a game of golf, where he wrongly reads Japanese and accidentally registers for a Hunger Games-style round of golf where only the winner avoids death.

The Cast:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Joel Nagasaki)

Wipeout

Action

The Synopsis: The year is 2057. Nuclear war has wiped out most of the world’s population, which now sits at around 2.1 billion. One billion live in a single state-run city where only those competing in the dangerous F3600 anti-gravity racing league can acquire wealth. Harper, a young janitor that dreams of one day becoming a renowned racer, witnesses the murder of a government official by the world’s No.1 anti-gravity racer, Nixon Vanburough. Not wanting to commit the same atrocity on a citizen, Nixon offers Harper a job on his pit crew in return for keeping the murder secret. Harper soon works his way up the team, eventually taking Nixon’s place, who attempts to sabotage the final race of the season ... and blow up the arena along with it.

The Cast:

Emile Hirsch (Harper)

Patrick Dempsey (Nixon)

Buzz!

Drama

The Synopsis: As ratings fall and advertising revenue stumbles, the charismatic host of fledgling television quiz show, Buzz!, heads down a trail of lust and drug addiction.

The Cast:

Jeff Daniels (Buzz)

PaRappa The Rapper

Drama

The Synopsis: PaRappa, a ridiculously-thin kid from Anytown USA, is desperately trying to win the heart of his high school crush, Sunny Funny, a hippie from a broken home. However, Joe Chin wins her heart by using his wealth to fund her activism. PaRappa turns to his skills as a rapper to work his way up the underground scene, only he pushes Funny further away.

The Cast:

DJ Qualls (PaRappa)

This has been a ridiculously random musing.
